Coming soon to a theater near you: China's Communist Party.

Beijing is having increasing success in pressuring Hollywood into deleting movie content it finds objectionable. It is demanding changes in plot lines that denigrate the Chinese leadership and removal of lurid depictions of sex and violence

It's even getting American studios to sanction alternative versions of films specially tailored for Chinese audiences, like "Iron Man 3," which debuts in theaters around the world later this week.

There's no secret to what's driving the change. China is already the second-biggest box office in the world and seems set to surpass the North American market this decade.
